It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new.
But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful.
There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power.

Autumn in Buenos Aires

Autumn in Buenos Aires is such a treat.
The nights suddenly go chilly, you are surprised that you need a sweater.
A blanket goes on the bed and you can sleep like a baby without the air conditioner droning on and on. This is especially nice for a couple who have different temperature needs.
 One of us gets cool easily. One of us has unexpected increases in heat easily.

Some trees are drying up and losing leaves.
Some are turning yellow, but most are still full and thick and green.
It will be months still of shady trees in the parks before it all falls and the bare winter look is here.
Which is not so bad when it is sunny, the trees are so amazing, they look good naked too .
We took a long walk today.
Stopped at our favorite outdoor restaurant and had a naughty lunch.
He had Malbec, She had a Bloody Mary and they shared a plate of French fries.
Told you ... Naughty.
Then a long walk, through the neighborhood, taking photos of everything .. trees, doors, windows, houses.. what will I photograph when we leave here ?
The Plane trees just get dried , yellow/brown and fall.
But the bark is so amazing, they are just as beautiful bare.
Soon we will need jackets and the smell of woodsmoke will be strong at night ..
Autumn in Buenos Aires, it will last forever in my memories.
